Demartek Becomes a SNIA Emerald Recognized Tester
Demartek announces that it is the first test lab to become an official SNIA Emerald™ Recognized Tester. Demartek has demonstrated proficiency with the SNIA Emerald test procedure, and Demartek’s processes and expertise in this area have been audited by SNIA.
The SNIA Emerald program provides storage system power usage and efficiency information to the public, as part of the Green Storage Initiative. SNIA Emerald defines a very specific test procedure to provide performance/watt and capacity/watt results for storage systems, known as the SNIA Emerald™ Power Efficiency Measurement Specification. This SNIA Emerald specification is used for the EPA ENERGY STAR Data Center Storage program.
